Parenting through the Toddler years: Introductory Workshop

Workshop for parents/caregivers with children 12-36 months


The first three years of life are when your child's most dramatic brain development occurs. During these early years, parents have the profound opportunity to nurture their child’s cognitive, social, and emotional development through connected, responsive parenting.  This workshop seeks to support parents of toddlers by offering a glimpse into their child's rapidly developing brain, an overview of typical developmental milestones, and guidelines for setting developmentally appropriate expectations (“When is my son old enough to know how to share his toys?” “Why does my daughter run away when I tell her to sit down?”). We will practice evidence-based positive discipline strategies to navigate challenging toddler behaviors and set appropriate limits, while maintaining a strong connection with your child through the toddler years.

This workshop leads to an in-depth, five-week Parenting Through the Toddler Years series.
